Old Documents

My next project is to go through all of the non-newsletters documents that we found 2 years ago, scan them, and once I have a good idea of how to organize them, post them here on this website.

Some of these documents date back to the 1950’s, such as our zoning permission grant from Baltimore County for the establishment of our prior post home as a “private club”. Also included are the agreements between Post 116 and the Maryland 2nd Artillery for the use of the cannon and other miscellaneous historically interesting documents.
